Goodwood Tips and Racecourse Guide

One of the most beautiful racecourses in Europe, Goodwood is steeped in history, with racing at the course since 1802.  The feature event of the year, and one of the highlights of the summer for flat racing, is the Qatar Goodwood Festival, affectionately referred to as ‘Glorious Goodwood’.

The Listed Height Of Fashion Stakes and Cocked Hat Stakes are two early-season Classic trials, while there are a trio of Group 1 contests to look forward to during the Qatar Goodwood Festival; the Sussex Stakes, the Goodwood Cup and the Nassau Stakes.

The Stewards’ Cup, a sprint handicap over six furlongs, is one of the trickiest handicaps of the year to solve and is traditionally the big betting race of the summer at Goodwood.

Race Sharp provides free tips for all meetings at Goodwood throughout the year, including detailed betting updates throughout the Glorious Goodwood meeting.
